    Pretty cool story here, a privateer team doing LeMans in a Viper sponsored by Viper Exchange, a big dealer in Texas that sponsors several cars in the United States, too.

    Very hard hit on both initial and secondary.
    Hope he's alright too, that's his second big crash at this circuit, IIRC his other big one was 2012?
    Sounds like the car is out of the race.

    ^^ I think the Aston Martin was 2013 at a different part of the track. Driver did not make it, although the hit was more perpendicular than Magnussen's crash.

    The Allen Simonsen crash was at Tertre Rouge, going into the Mulsanne straight -

    Driver didn't make it because the guard rail that is supposed to dissipate the energy of the crash was butted right against a tree at the exact point of impact.
    Trees are bad.

    Scroll about 2/3rds of the way down this page.

    The one I was refering to as the other big crash that Mags had is this one (2011) -

    I don't really watch much racing but I am following the Viper team's progress. One of the guys is a high school buddy. Qualified 4th was the latest update I heard.

    if this was a 2 minutes course that we are most familiar with, that's 1/2 of those times.......you give me 11 seconds (1/2 of 22 seconds) at BRP, my Miata can run down Oli's Vette....

    Sportscar One - Nissan demoted after qualifying penalty

    The GT-R LM NISMOs will start 30th, 31st and 32nd at Le Mans after failing to meet qualifying regulations.
    A difficult WEC debut for Nissan has been made even tougher after all three GT-R LM NISMOs were given grid penalties for the 24 Hours of Le Mans after failing to lap inside the 110% qualifying minimum.

    The radical LMP1 car - which is front-engined and front wheel drive - failed to beat the times of the LMP1-H cars or the non-hybrid prototypes of Rebellion and ByKolles but did slowly improve throughout the three qualifying sessions.

    Nissan had ended the session with the #23 and #22 cars finishing ahead of all the LMP2 field but the penalty demotes all three cars to 30th, 31st and 32nd places.

    I am pretty sure all 3 separate Porsche cars were fighting to be on the top podium spot.
    race drivers are dicks. never listen to team.
